After the game against Athletic Bilbao, Zinedine Zidane met with journalists. French coach was happy with the outcome but not too happy with the performance.
Keep improving in every match
Zidane said that Real Madrid is improving form in every match. The coach noted an interesting fact – he admitted that sometimes it’s important to change the style of the game. French coach added that in the second half, the team changed a bit to focus on winning. As you may know, Athletic Bilbao scored an equalizer in the start of the second half. That’s why Real Madrid was in need of changing style to score winning goals.
Going against all odds
Zidane said that there is no easy match in La Liga. He noted that every Spanish club is in a good physical condition, so it’s hard for big teams that play in Champions league to compete with Spanish clubs. Zidane said that Athletic Bilbao players were physically better and they could run more than Los Blancos. In the end, Zidane noted that Real Madrid players created more chances and deserved three points.
Benzema as the biggest French striker
Zinedine Zidane said that Karim Benzema is a complete player. French coach believes that Benzema is definitely the biggest striker France ever had. Benzema scored two goals yesterday and helped the team in the defense too. Coach noted that Benzema is not only for scoring. He knows how to play in a smart way.
